Germans Are Awesome Engneers!

90 % of this beautifull city was destroyed in world war 2 but thay built it as good as it was on 50 years ago. It worth it to see this beautiful city.

after visiting similar places in europe (Versailles, Buckingham) I must say this one is still unique. It gives you the feeling that you have to discover this place on your own. There is not too much "tourist business2 around the Zwinger. But nice cafes and restaurants. watch out: dont go on a monday - most things are closed.

My wife and I spent two weeks in Germany, our favorite country. Most of our time is always in Bavaria, taking day trips from Munich, and of course trips to Austria. I have a cousin that lives in Schwedt, Germany and I asked him to guide us in the Czech Republic as his Christmas present to us. Took a day... More

Originally built for the wedding celebration of the king son with the emperor daughter, Zwinger is still a place of happy feelings. First historical building to be rebuilt after the WWII, is really nice and if you want to live his magic atmosphere have a walk along the path over the buildings...much better if you go there at sunset when...

If you visit Dresden, don't leave without taking some photos in the grounds of the zwinger. The gardens and fountains are amazing. If you have enjoyed the Saxony scenery in the Grand Budapest Hotel, then you need to swing by the zwinger to see it for yourself.

Very nice museum, I was pleasantly surprised at the selection of what one can see. Main section of the museum has plenty of paintings (huge selection of old masters), I was more into seeing the math and physics exhibition (solar system orreries, telescopes, solar mirrors, vacuum pumps, etc...) and the ceramics section was excellent as well. I wish they would... More

Magnificent! The grounds, clock, entries, statuary, buildings, beautifully restored which made Saxony come alive for me. The bell clock at the entry to the courtyard makes this worth a visit alone. Swing by on the hour. The fountains, the landscaping, the statuary, the courtyard is just completely awesome! While the renovation is far from complete, the entire complex is deserving... More
